Do you think God is awesome? Good for you. You’ve found the beginning of wisdom. Sadly, the world these days does not think that God has anything to do with wisdom. But they don’t know anything about real life. They don’t know how awesome God is and where the blessings really come from.
For whoever finds me (Wisdom) finds life
And obtains favor and grace from theLord.
(Proverbs 8:35, AMP)
God is awesome
God is not awesome just because the Bible tells us so. I have experienced God’s awesomeness in my life many times. He has pulled me through some difficult life experiences but recently I have most been inspired by God’s presence in my everyday life. How he cares for my wellbeing and moves sweetly in my life. God is awesome. Also in small stuff.
The [reverent] fear of the Lord [that is, worshiping Him and regarding Him as truly awesome] is the beginning and the preeminent part of wisdom [its starting point and its essence], And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding and spiritual insight. (Proverbs 9:10, AMP)
God is holy
Truly God is awesome. Much more so than we can ever understand. The starting point and the essence of wisdom is to know that God is holy. Whomever knows this is well on his/her way to know God intimately. It might sound odd to use the words ‘holy’ and ‘intimately’ in the same sentence. But it really isn’t.
Our God is holy and when we acknowledge that we automatically position ourselves rightly: on our knees worshiping God. That is the beginning of the wisdom. God is God and we most certainly are not. But that’s not all there is. Because God is not distant or uncaring or unreachable. He wants to be known intimately. And that happens when we worship him day in day out. Because he is so awesome!
You are an awesome God.
We can’t tame you,
you are holy and wild and wonderful.
So we worship you;
be praised forever and ever!
Thank you for not being distant or uninterested in our affairs.
You amaze us for loving and caring for us so deeply.
Thanks for being more awesome than we can even imagine.
In Jesus’ name,
Q4U: Why do you think God is awesome?
Be blessed, my fellow pilgrim, as you worship the Holy One!
